Nice list so far, but missing at least 1 album/band:
- Shape of Despair - Shades Of... (or any of the other two albums, but I highly prefer the debut)

That's the only essential band (for me that is, since I haven't delved deep into the funeral doom genre) that has to be on here if you ask me, but there are many others that qualify for this list:
- Ataraxie - Slow Transcending Agony
- Black Wreath - A Pyre of Lost Dreams
- Catacombs - In The Depths Of R'lyeh
- Depressed Mode - Ghosts Of Devotion
- Doom:VS - Aeternum Vale/Dead Words Speak (or maybe even the new album that's going to be released this year)
- Monolithe - Monolithe I (or any of the others, but haven't heard those)
- Profetus - Coronation Of The Black Sun/...To Open The Passages In Dusk
- Worship - Last CD Before Doomsday/Dooom

That should be enough for now. Have fun checking them out.

You're totally right about Shape of Despair. I'll add it. As for the others, sure thing and thanks. I'm sure I've listened to some of them but it never hurts to go back and try them.

PS: You know, I had sent an email to Johan Ericson (Doom:VS) for an interview but unfortunately nothing came out of it.

Good to see you added their debut. In my opinion it totally blows away Angels of Distress which is probably only so popular because of the song "Quiet These Paintings Are". A brilliant song but unfortunately the only brilliant song on the album with the rest being way less great.

Shame you didn't get to interview him. Anyway, not saying the list should be huge, but it could benefit from most (if not all) bands/albums I suggested.

I love their debut too. Angels of Distress wasn't really my cup of coffee, either. I found it somewhat lacking and less majestic than the debut. Illusion's Play wasn't much convincing either, although it was far better than AoD. Not at all mate, I'll be happy to use suggestions and maintain crowd control over this list at the same time.

Then I got the chance to get in touch with the folks from In Mourning. They were a bit surprised that they had fans in Iran as well. lol
(All my interviews are published on this Iranian forum I work for.)

Yes, Shades Of... is near-perfect for me, an amazing piece of work. And I would actually call Angels of Distress boring sometimes, while Shades Of... is never boring. Haven't heard Illusion's Play, but will definitely check it out sooner or later, but I won't expect too much of it.

A list like this (as far as I know the only funeral doom list on MS) is helpful to me since now I realize there are still a couple funeral doom debuts for my list to check out.

Marcel Hubregtse - 26.09.2013 at 18:55  
As for Erik's suggestions Ataraxie isn't funeral doom but death/doom
as Funeral somehow peplpe keep on calling that album you listd funeral doom when I at most hear death/doom there with some slight gothic thrown in. And Evoken I have Always considered bordeline death/doom fuineral/doom but do fir in this list.

Btw nice list but I do miss either the Worship DEMO which Erik named (but it's actually a demo) or their debut album Dooom.

Also check out Wolvserpent - Perigaea Antahka
and anything by Wormphlegm and also Tyranny.

Ataraxie...I only listened to their last album.
I'm sure Funeral and Evoken fall under the "doom albums with a borderline personality disorder" category. As for Worship + Wolvserpent + Wormphlegm + Tyranny, sure thing. I'm making a long list for the nominees I want to add.

I think Ataraxie is funeral death doom, just like Evoken (at least Quietus, which I listened to lots of times). Evoken (again, specifically directed at Quietus) is definitely not pure death doom... atmospheric death doom I can see though, but I still think funeral death doom fits Evoken best.

Worship - Last CD Before Doomsday is a full length album according to MS, but at MA it's considered a demo. Okay, I'll replace it with the real debut album on my own list then.

it's a demo tape (released in 1999) that clocks in at 46 minutes and was only later re-released as cd (in 2004 and 2006 bot times with a bonus track) and vinyl (in 2002 and 2009)

Hey man, thanks a lot for the suggestion. I've heard a song or two by Comatose Vigil and they're very good. I'll add it once I'm done listening to it.
R'Vannith - 28.09.2013 at 15:03  
Some of these albums are ones I've become particularly attached to from this genre as well. I tried to like Thegothon but I couldnt get past the wall of fuzzy.

I'd suggest Wraith of the Ropes, their album Ada is disturbing, scary stuff. Especially the half whispered half growled vocals.

hahahaha you're totally right about the fuzziness. The production is the hardest part to get attached to. For me the music was easy to digest though.
As for Wraith of the Ropes, sure thing. I'll listen to Ada, and if I lived through that, I'll add it.
Thanks for the suggestion.
Carrion Misery - 28.09.2013 at 18:52  
Great list, dude. Doom:VS and Black Wreath are awesome as well. I suggest adding Void of Silence and Longing For Dawn. Great fucking bands. Inspirational as hell. Longing For Dawn is perfect for driving on a dark winter evening.

Hey thanks man. I'm gonna add Doom:VS after I post this message. As for Void of Silence, I'm a bit reluctant over selecting an album. Although it's a little hard to get into their stuff, nevertheless they all would qualify as "compelling funeral doom metal albums".

As for the others, sure thing. It's a shame we can't have a good winter here in Dubai but the music is good.

still no. I'd rate Funeralim 7.9 and Deceived Idealism 8.9, so clearly Funeralium is the weaker album

well to be honest, I just played that album once and then for odd reasons, it got deleted from my hard drive. Back then I did not know what is exactly funeral doom but for sure "clouds are burning" resembled esoteric and I thought it is funeral doom. overall, it was a damn good album.

Listened to an excerpt and it sounds like a cross between Funeral Doom Metal and Death/Doom Metal. Still, I think I'll add it once I'm done with it. Thanks for the suggestion.

So that would be "funeral death doom" metal, like Evoken. But I haven't heard anything by Faal, so can't comment on what genre they're playing, but I thought it was blackened doom.
Marcel Hubregtse - 30.09.2013 at 19:35  
Faal is like Esoteric but with some slight black in it and post rock. Not really black doom. More funeral doom with black and some post rock as well

Well Blood Geometry is easily his (Mutatiis) best, but it's not an easy listen at over two hours, and is honestly more neoclassical black metal than funeral doom. I'd highly recommend you check out Cold Walls And Apparitions though, perfect for a list like this.
